The most interesting part of this episode is the Mass Defect. Our whole lives we have been told that mass will always be the same, if it was one object or two objects. But this definition changes that whole view. The mass of the two objects put together is not equivalent to the sum of each one put together because they lose mass to the surrounding area which in turn holds the two masses together. This development brings everyone to question if this happens with everything or if it only involves those masses of atomic atoms.
